    The White House insisted Tuesday that it was not aware of the David Petraeus scandal until last Wednesday, blaming FBI "protocols" for not being informed earlier.

    Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Obama was "surprised" when he learned last Thursday that Petraeus had carried on an extramarital affair. While the FBI had at that point already been investigating for months, Carney said "protocols" at the agency apparently kept them from notifying Congress and other agencies in the Executive Branch.

    In the latest shoe to drop, the FBI on Sunday forwarded to the Pentagon a case involving thousands of "potentially inappropriate" emails between one of the women linked to the scandal and Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan.

    Cantor should have sent the memo when he found out back in Oct.

    But, seriously... You may choose to make up the idea that they did know about it, but just remember that you have no evidence that proves it.

    So basically anything other than what the whitehouse said is conjecture, until we know different.

    A bigger concern may be the White House puts everything, including national security, on hold during campaign season. Terrorists will plan accordingly.

    This president is either the most dishonest hack ever, or the most Inept President in history. I mean if he is telling the truth, then he has a real fucked up admin, with people not telling him shit he CLEARLY should know about.
